You may choose to use the 3ds Max character template and plug-in to either create an iClone standard character or any other content. You may use 3DXchange5 to characterize the character from 3ds Max for use in iClone (if the character is made in Biped system, 3DXchange5 provides one-click bone mapping).
You may also optimize and export iClone content to 3ds Max for Biped and CAT bone structures.
